Anyone know if this is going ahead this year? Want to lock the date in.

No more details yet though.

Navigator booked in :D

Also seeing if I can get the GTV sounding nice for the run (see exhaust thread in 916 section)

Anyone else planning to attend?

Assuming I don't get committed elsewhere that day, I plan to. Last year was a hoot, chasing through Perth hills.

Yeah because I'd been 4 years in a row, last year I only went to the opening meet point to perve at the exotics, and then followed the cruise for a bit before getting lost and then peeling off for a pub lunch with a mate.

Always good fun no matter how you join.

Going the hole hog this year again as I'll be bringing a Pasta Run virgin with me.

That reminds me.....I did a "directors cut" edit of my 2012 video. Took out the music and just left the engine sounds.....

I still have footage from 2015 to shop together lol. Was too busy driving that year though. Had both the Silver GTV and the Silver 147 there, with my and 1 son in the GTV, and the wife and the other son in the 147. Great fun for the whole family :D

I've been informed this is a members only event this year, which gives me a good excuse to get that sorted :D

Great stuff. What are you driving? I'll make a point of saying hi.

Paid my membership and I'll be booking meal tickets this week :D

Have also done up the promotion video for them using the footage from previous years, so look out for that ;)

Look forward to seeing the video. Haven't decided which car yet, generally take the GTV on things like this, but haven't taken my current 156 on any club runs yet, and I do like stretching her legs in the country. Might depend on whether the GTV feels like getting out of bed that morning! Regardless, I will make sure to say g'day and check out that new exhaust of yours.

haha i know what you mean.

The GTV is the pick of the day for me, but randomly the clutch plays up a little (pedal feels like it hits metal), but most of the time it's fine.

So the 147 is on standby LOL.
